STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING (SUP)
Stand Up Paddle Boarding is nothing new, at least not to the Hawaiians. Big Blue Unlimited is the first to bring SUPs to the Turks & Caicos and in so doing we will open the waters around our mangrovesand reefs up to the more active minded eco traveler. Much like kayaks the SUPs will allow you to get deep into the mangroves and cruises around the cays with the added advantage of a stable platform that not only provides a great view but also an awesome core work out. If you have balance and fancy trying something different to kayaking our top of the line Naish (www.naish.com) SUP will put you in the driver's seat.

Backcountry Wilderness SafariBook It
Our new wilderness safari is perfect for those who have already joined us on our SUP eco tour or with previous paddling background. For a true wilderness experience in an internationally protected wetlands habitat we travel by boat to the southern side of the Caicos Islands. There we transfer onto our SUP's and start exploring countless possible routes through the maze and labyrinth of interconnecting mangrove channels. We look for bird and marine life along the way including the beautiful reddish egrets and skittish pink flamingos and although the marine life is generally small, dolphins have been spotted at the mouths of the channels. Enjoy the solitude and adventure as you wind your way through this unique environment. With some simple modifications to our boats we're now able to transport up to 6 paddlers to join us on these exciting adventures into the interior wilderness. Snacks and picnic lunch provided.
